    I'm 6'8", 37" inseam and 250lbs. I currently ride a Gary Fisher Zebrano 25" but looking to try out a Surly Ogre (which is what brought me to this forum).
    When I have 7 more posts I can show you a picture of the bike.

    I'm 6'6" 265 lbs with a 38" inseam. I ride a Salsa Dos Niner soft tail with a Reba fork. I've had a lot of fun on this bike! I had to get some heavier wheels put on, but it is still a sub 28 lb bike.

    It has been 8 years, and I just sold the Gemini. That beast has served me well as my 'do everything bike' during that time. Logged hundreds of hours on 'her', from the Whistler Bike Park to 5 finishes of the Squamish Test of Metal, but mostly rides on local trails with my Dog and more recently carrying and pulling my kids around.

    A LOT of great memories, a little sad to see her go.


    On the bright side, 'she' now has a second life with a new home and I get to look forward to riding my new Rocky Mountain Altitude 970 for the next 8 years!

    6'4"- 260 (32" inseam) and I'm riding a Marin Sky Trail (my first ever MTB)
    It's a 19" and surprisingly it fits me pretty good I think.

    Cool-blue Rhythm im a biggin but in good condition.

    I'm currently 280 lbs riding a 2012 trek 4500 with upgraded rims because I bent the factory ones in a couple crashes lol got some cracked ribs but I'm back up and riding. Thinking of upgrading forks but not sure if i should spend the money on forks or just get a new bike. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Problems? Women love us, we get great views at concerts and people tend to trust us more than not.
    The less-enlightened bike manufacturers have the problem - they aren't getting our money. Unlike Surly, Ribble etc etc.

    6-1, 32in inseam...220lbs. I have owned many mountain bikes, mostly size 19/20 and L.

    The last 2 mountain bikes I've owned were a size L Prophet and a size 19 Rockhopper (hardtail). Both had longer stems, and seemed to fit well. The Prophet had a wheel base around 2in longer than the Rockhopper. I recently purchased a 2013 CAAD8 road bike in a size 58cm and the fit couldn't be better.

    Looking to build up another mountain bike soon, and will be posting some general questions in a new thread just as soon as i reach my 5 post min. :-p

    Haha! Didn't mean to imply life was too difficult, I can't complain. I was thinking along the lines of finding well fitting gear. Took me a while to find shoes for clip less pedals.(size16w - shimano m087)

    I was just being flippant and you're right. Visiting the states (Florida) this November so will stock up on full-leg and full-sleeve cycling gear. Usually ride in shorts because there's no long stuff to fit here in UK so then I ***** out all winter - not this year.

    Need to get used to this American forum - just had p-u-s-s-y deleted. Not such a shocker here in UK. Of course, I meant to wimp out.

    6'3" and now 250 lbs. My main ride is a 2005 Expert 120 Stumpy. Just picked up an XL 2009 Dos Niner! Man, I dig this ride. It is georgeous. Haven't tackled anything hardcore, as she is hella pretty and I am needing to not be a fool and wrap my tool before I ride her in the dirt! Loving the 29er roll over though. Have a great ride all!
